The Stipendiary Stewards report:

At approximately the 100 metre mark ILSANPIETRO (*J P van der Merwe) shifted inwards some 2 to 3 horse widths, bumping HEROD THE GREAT (A Delpech).  Thereafter ILSANPIETRO (BRZ) (*J P van der Merwe) continued shifting inwards, carrying in HEROD THE GREAT (A Delpech) a further 5 to 6 horse widths.

After calling a race review, an objection was lodged by Jockey A Delpech, the rider of the second placed horse, HEROD THE GREAT, against the winner. ILSANPIETRO (* J P van der Merwe), on the grounds of being bumped and carried inwards in the latter stages of the race.

The Objection Board, after hearing all the evidence and viewing the patrol films of the race, and taking into consideration the official distance between the two horses as given by the judge, that being a neck, were of the opinion that but for the interference HEROD THE GREAT (A Delpech) would have finished in front of ILSANPIETRO (BRZ) (*J P van der Merwe), and upheld the objection.
